What is the cheapest way to get from International Airport to the Mumbai CST? Which are the other options (not so cheap, but I suppose more comfortable)?

Taxis tariffs are acceptable in Mumbai, I even once rented a car for half day with a driver for 25$. This was last year. –  MeNoTalk Jul 21 '13 at 15:32
    
Maybe, but this is our first trip to India so I don't have an idea about how to pay for this. I don't want to pay 3 times the price, even if this is still cheap :) –  Ivan Jul 21 '13 at 15:36

I think taxi from airport will be more expensive as almost any other airport in the world. Anyway if you are staying in a hotel ask the hotel for this, where I stayed they sent me a Mercedes to pick me up for free (Marriott). –  MeNoTalk Jul 21 '13 at 15:42
    
No, I have to take a train at night –  Ivan Jul 21 '13 at 17:37

The cheapest (that's not walking or hitchhiking) is to take an autorickshaw to Andheri train station (50 - 100) rupees, followed by a train ride to Churchgate (7 rupees), from which you can walk or take a taxi (40 rupees?) to CST. However, this is quite cumbersome and very time consuming. Expect this to take two hours total.

The prepaid taxi booth at the airport will charge you no more than 550 rupees to get you to CST. That's, what, 7 euros? The convenience is more than worth it.
